Steph’s college degree comes 13 years after he entered the NBA. According to Davidson College, he only needed to complete one semester to graduate, so he re-enrolled, and with the help of professors from Davidson, Stanford, and UC Santa Cruz, he was able to complete his coursework to earn his degree.
Steph also received support from his team, who shared an image of him wearing a cap and gown.

Steph attended Davidson College from 2006 to 2009, and then he entered the NBA in 2009 after being drafted by the Golden State Warriors in the First Round, as the 7th overall pick. The team is currently facing off against the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference Finals as they work to become the NBA Champions once again.
ESPN notes that Davidson College will likely retire Steph’s jersey number, as the school only retires the numbers of players who have graduated.
